Media practitioners were seen gathering as early as 9 am at Istana Seri Kinabalu here to monitor the movements of leaders, but at the point this news was written, there was no official information on any event for coverage at the istana.
Meanwhile, Sri Gaya which has also become a meeting place for state leaders from Gabungan Rakyat Sabah (GRS) has also drawn the attention of media representatives who are expected to gather there on the latest political status in the state.
Yesterday, Datuk Seri Hajiji Noor claimed he had obtained the support of 44 Sabah state assemblymen among them from GRS, Pakatan Harapan (PH) and Barisan Nasional (BN), and therefore the Sabah government is still intact and he is still the chief minister now.
Twenty nine of the 44 assemblymen are from GRS with PH (7), BN (5), PAS (1), Parti Harapan Rakyat Sabah (1) and Independent (1).
However, Sabah BN chairman Datuk Seri Bung Moktar Radin yesterday insisted that the current Sabah Government no longer exists and that the position of chief minister held by Hajiji has been dissolved with Sabah BN's action of withdrawing support from the state government last Friday (Jan 6).
On Saturday (Jan 7), Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim said he would hold a meeting with Sabah leaders to discuss the state's political issues after returning from an official visit to Indonesia scheduled for today. - BERNAMA
